Net.Time Ω is a modular clock suitable for many industriies willing to integrate under the same architecture any combination of timing protocols including PTP, NTP, PRP, ToD, PPS, IRIG-B, DCF77, SyncE, MHz, T1/E1 and ASCII outputs.
The new substation clocks typically run PTP/NTP over PRP but also include all the legacy signal to facilitate the integration of conventional substations and the new IEC 61850 standards by offering a wide variety of reference inputs and outputs.
The frequency holdover or partial holdover function is an example of how frequency references could be used in phase & time synchronization. This Net.Time feature provides nanosecond accuracy for a long time when GNSS or PTP references are lost.
The accuracy of a watch depends on the application. Anyone who wants to catch a train has to have an eye on the minutes. In competitive sport, a hundredth of a second can be decisive and a packaging machine may need microsecond accuracy.
